McConnell, GOP senators meet Zelenskyy in surprise Kyiv stop

WASHINGTON: Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and a delegation of GOP senators consulted with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv throughout an unannounced go to Saturday, providing the current show of American uniformity with the country at war with Russia.
A video published on Zelenskyy’s Telegram account revealed McConnell, R-Ky., and Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, John Barrasso of Wyoming and John Cornyn of Texas greeting him in the capital. Zelensky, in an Instagram post, called the check out “a strong signal of bipartisan assistance for Ukraine from the United States Congress and the American individuals.”
The trip came at a time when the Senate is working to approve a nearly $40 billion package for Ukraine, a significant infusion of support that will push American help to the area well above $50 billion. The step consists of $6 billion for Ukraine for intelligence, devices and training for its forces, plus $4 billion in funding to help Ukraine and NATO allies develop their militaries.
Passage was postponed Thursday by Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, who demanded the addition of a proposition to have an inspector general scrutinize the brand-new spending. But last approval is not in doubt and could come in the week ahead, showing frustrating support in Congress for renewing the Ukrainian war effort.
“They’re only requesting the resources they need to defend themselves versus this deranged invasion,” McConnell said this previous week of the Ukrainians. “And they need this help today.”
It was the 2nd high-profile congressional delegation to drop in Ukraine in as many weeks. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., checked out on May 1 with a group of House Democrats and guaranteed Zelenskyy that the United States will “be there for you till the fight is done.”
Very first girl Jill Biden visited western Ukraine last weekend for a Mom’s Day conference with Zelenskyy’s partner, Olena Zelenska.
